Growing trees for a brighter future »
 
Residents of underprivelaged communities in Vosloorus have been given the opportunity to empower themselves by an initiative from Qhubeka Eco and Century Property Developments. Communities are supplied tree seed propagation starter kits which consist of all the elements required to grow an indigenous tree. For every 150 tree saplings they grow, the community receives a bicycle. To date, Century has incentivised 20,000 trees to be grown, thus providing 133 bicycles. This simple initiative teaches the value of exchange, a respect for our natural flora and provides opportunity for improved transport for our country's children.

The Wright way; Unusual art forms can fit the bill »
 

In this edition we highlight the dramatic KUBA cloth from a low lying river district in south central Zaire. “I often use handmade African pieces to accessorize projects and to provide art form “ says Caroline Wright of Spatial Concepts. “The hand made nature contributes the “soul’ – a dimension required to add depth to a setting and is a welcome relief from the mass produced items that are so abundantly used nowadays.

Century Property Developments, in partnership with environmental company Eco Solutions, has launched a project to provide safe and tailor-made accommodation for bats and owls found within Gauteng.

The project involves the creation of a “poison-free” zone at Century’s 2 000 hectare Waterfall Estate development. This includes the installation of 12 owl and eight bat boxes at the Estate to encourage bats and owls to return to the area.

Four barn owl chicks rescued by Free Me have been relocated to and raised on the Estate in an owl box supplied by Eco Solutions. They were released on Wednesday, 26 June, at 05h00.
